The Old Schoolhouse
History and vines - a perfect match
A stay at the Old Schoolhouse is an experience that you are unlikely to forget. Set at the top of the gently sloping vineyard with stunning views over vines, sea and inlet, the Old Schoolhouse is your chance to immerse yourself in the rural life of a coastal New Zealand vineyard.
The historic building served as the Redwood Valley Schoolhouse for many years and was originally built in the 1930s. It gained a new lease of life when it was moved onto Kina Beach Vineyard in 1999 and lovingly restored, providing a setting of historic charm and modern comfort you will be most reluctant to leave.
